Jared Waerea-Hargreaves has been heavily touted as making the switch to Super League.
The 34-year-old veteran has featured 33 times for New Zealand and over 250 times for Sydney Roosters but a potential move to Super League had been suggested with the experienced forward in the last year of his current deal and with plenty of competition in the Roosters pack.
Talk of a Super League move started during the World Cup around the time of his infamous “dog shot” which got him sin binned just minutes into his return from suspension.
The forward was initially linked with a move to Catalans Dragons.
It was then said that next season, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, he is headed to Super League.
If so, Catalans will likely be a contender given Steve McNamara’s link to the Roosters and as aforementioned the French side could be in a position where they could sign the prop early if the opportunity arises.
However, talk emerged that he could retire instead of making the move according to Zero Tackle.
Now though the prop has opened up himself about his future and is keen on staying with the Roosters.
“I’ve been here 14 seasons now, it’s a club I really love and I’m passionate about, and hopefully I can continue to enjoy my footy,” Waerea-Hargreaves said to News Corp.
“I know my role, I still get a massive kick off these younger boys. I’m probably the most immature out of all of them. I still love it, I really do. I’m at an age where I just want to enjoy each week, and I’m really loving my footy.
“I can see myself playing on next year. It’s about staying mentally fresh, and hopefully the performances take care of it.”
